    No, these are the same frets as the regular LUKE model.

    This is probably the first time that EBMM has given me such a head scratching moment.

    Why would they make this unique BFR Luke, make it so limited (and awesome), and NOT put SS frets on it?

    Unless Steve himself didn't ask for them, this decision puzzles me for sure.

    These look so good but in the UK these cost 3499!! That's $4550, can't believe it costs that much to get it to the UK, oh well I'll have to keep saving for the Valentine.

    Back in 2009 I built guitars and was a moderator on a site called ProjectGuitar.com and I used a method of staining that a lot use nowadays. When I built a 50's Strat replica from scratch I used Swamp Ash, but the wood has very deep pours. So since I didn't want it to sink in later after painting, I used epoxy and decided that it might make the grain pop out even more if I used black die mixed with epoxy to do so. It turned out amazing and seems like everyone started doing it after I posted my Strat build tutorial. I'm not sure if that's what they did on these, but it wouldn't shock me. Ernie Ball builds some top notch guitars!

    Ernie Ball posted a vid yesterday of Luke demoing the BFR Tumescent:
    Steve Lukather Luke III BFR

    I love this one they posted a few months ago of Daniel Donato demoing it:

    These guitars continue to impress me, it must be the all-mahogany construction. I'm very tempted to take home one of the HSS models that we have here -- and I'm not usually a single coil guy!
